I participated in the European Cybercrime Training and Education Group General Assembly on October 27th and 28th. This assembly brought together academic and institutional components around training projects against cybercrime, where I had the opportunity to present the progress of C1b3rWall Academy, our cybersecurity training program.
Following the election at the General Assembly, European Cybercrime Training Education Group, I can say that the BISITE Research Group, and with it the University of Salamanca, has been admitted as a full member of this initiative, seeking to continue promoting programs and training activities in digital security and cyberintelligence. Furthermore, this collaboration is going to respond to the need and demand for technology specialists capable of planning and implementing innovative projects.
ECTEG is an initiative whose main objective is to provide expertise and knowledge through the development and delivery of a robust and lasting training program, that will help increase each country’s capacity to combat cybercrime
It will undoubtedly have an impact on the continuous improvement of cybersecurity training, as international participation will not only harmonize training across international borders, but also share knowledge, experience and training solutions. Togetherness in training represents commitment and momentum in improving the quality of learning. ECTEG coordinated https://c1b3rwallacademy.usal.es/ in the 2020-21 edition and we have taken over. The University of Salamanca coordinates this training project together with the National Police in the 2021-22 academic year. The training consists of 20 modules, there will be more than 400 speakers delivering lectures and it is estimated that more than half a million of students will take part in it.
